Orbiter 4 STUAS/NSUAS: The Orbiter 4 STUAS/NSUAS is an advanced multi-mission platform with an ability to carry and operate two different payloads simultaneously. With a maritime version, Orbiter 4 is continuing the evolution of the Orbiter line and the Small Tactical UAS, and delivers top mission performance with the lightest, most versatile, and most advanced covert platform available today, and is ideal for both land and maritime operations.

Orbiter 1K: It is a loitering unmanned system. Given a specific waypoint, the loitering Orbiter 1K can detect and destroy a moving or a stationary target. The system can also operate on the base of a given area range: the Orbiter 1K independently scans the area, detects and destroys the target — moving or stationary.

Orbiter 2 mini-UAS: The Orbiter 2 UAS is a compact and lightweight system which offers extended endurance and range, while operated by a crew of only two personnel.

Aerostar tactical UAS: The Aerostar advanced tactical UAS is ideal for a wide range of short range and medium range ISR & artillery missions, as it is equipped with a large payload bay, and capable of carrying many types of payloads, including day and night EO/IR sensors, radars and various electronic intelligence sensors (COMINT, ELIINT).

Dominator XP MALE UAS: Based on a DA-42 twin star commercial aircraft, it has operation capability over long range, The Dominator XP offers high reliability as in a manned aircraft with significantly low maintenance costs.
